Draper University – New Online Educational Program for Entrepreneurs

Ground breaking online school to teach Draper University’s incomparable entrepreneurial curriculum to aspiring entrepreneurs of all ages from around the world

Draper University, the innovative and disruptive school for young entrepreneurs located in Silicon Valley, will launch the first session of its online school, September 30- November 15, 2013. The online school will run in tandem with the existing boarding school and is now accepting applications from entrepreneurial students of all ages from all over the world. The school provides an outstanding opportunity for anyone unable to attend the Draper University boarding school to have access to Draper University’s extensive catalog of superb industry speakers and cutting-edge curriculum. Online school students will receive the same level of entrepreneurial education and should expect to spend at least 20 hours each week on their studies. The introductory session is being offered at a discounted rate of $399 for the 7- week session; the price will increase for following sessions.

Draper University decided to expand its program in response to the growing demand from entrepreneurs who are unable to attend the exclusive boarding school. The evolution of online schools is tremendous in all areas of education. The number of college students enrolled in at least one online course increased for the ninth straight year, according to the Babson Survey Research Group’s annual survey of more than 2,500 colleges and universities—including both nonprofit and for-profit institutions.

“I’m thrilled about the launch of the Draper University online school. Online education is here, it’s real and it should be an integral part of any educational institution. We are changing the lives of so many more aspiring entrepreneurs by addressing their global needs with our disruptive, groundbreaking curriculum,” said Tim Draper, Founder of Draper University and Co-Founder of DFJ Venture Fund.

Courses offered to online school students are identical to those offered to students of the boarding school program. The courses cover business basics and start up strategies but do so by using experiential hands on methods unique to Draper University. Classes will include both individual assignments and teamwork projects based on interest, geography, and background.
